The committee heard testimony from Mr. Doggett in support of U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Clarence Thomas in Judge Thomas' reopened Supreme Court confirmation hearings. The testimony provided by Mr. Doggett was in opposition to the claims by University of Oklahoma Law Professor Anita Hill, who charged Judge Thomas sexually harassed her while both of them were working at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the early and mid 1980's. Mr. Doggett testified Professor Hill believed, in the early 1980's, that a sexual attraction existed between them when none existed. He provided testimony about a party in Washington in the mid 1980's in which Professor Hill approached him and implied she felt a sexual attraction toward him, when he felt he had shown no reciprocal attraction. The testimony provided evidence for the denigration of the character of Professor Hill, who was characterized as an unstable person. Mr. Doggett responded very angrily to the use by Senator Metzenbaum of unsworn FBI records in questioning him. Chairman Biden Other panel members described occasions in which Professor Hill might have been likely to mention previous sexual harassment to them but did not. close
